Samsung introduce 5 Megapixel 360° Camera

Samsung Techwin has further strengthened its video surveillance solution range with the addition of two 5 megapixel 360-degree camera.

The SNF-8010 is able to capture superb quality 5 megapixel (2560×2048) images and has a digital PTZ feature which allows users to electronically pan, tilt and zoom in on specific areas for a more detailed view while at the same time continue to monitor the whole 360-degree view. An on-board dewarping function enables the images to be displayed in a variety of viewing configurations, including single or double panorama, as well as 360-degrees.

360-degree cameras are increasingly being specified for projects where there is a requirement to monitor activity 24/7 in environments such as banks, offices, retail and warehouses. A single 360-degree camera is quite often all that is required to efficiently and cost-effectively cover a whole area where a much larger number of standard cameras might normally be required. A 360 degree camera will compliment a video solution perfectly by giving the operator a complete view of an area while standard statics and pan/tilt cameras are used to pick up the detail at critical points such as doorways and to ensure there are no blind spots. This can be particularly beneficial in banks or retail stores where individuals can be monitored throughout their journey.

The IK10/IP66 rated vandal resistant, weather proof SNF-8010VM shares the same key features as the SNF-8010, including Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) which ensures clear, sharp images can be captured even when there may be strong contrasting lighting conditions. It also has an M12 connector and is EN50155 certified, making it ideal for use on buses and trains where it can be used internally to monitor passenger activity or externally to monitor the road or track ahead to provide video evidence of any incident.

Intelligent video analytics equips both of the ONVIF compliant models to detect motion and tampering and they also feature privacy masking, a 12VDC and PoE capability, bi-directional audio and alarm input/outputs. In the event of network disruption, video is automatically recorded to on-board SDXC storage to ensure that potential video evidence is not lost.
